Kenny K #57 Layer it up fancy folds

Theme at Kenny K - layers
Prize Sponsor - Crafty Ribbons

My Kenny K card today uses the gorgeous gal 'Uptown Angel' & she has been coloured with Promarkers to give her tumbling golden locks & faded grey jeans. The theme as you will have seen is to use loads of layers on your card and I chose to use a shaped card base (so there are layers on the side as well - not to mention the back! LOL), and I also used the great sketch over at CLP this month for the main body of the card. I combined  my version of a stepper card with yet another card shape by adding the restraining gusset of a tent card underneath the main section of the card which would ensure that the card wouldn't want to sag & go flat when sat on a mantelpiece or window sill.

Tent card gusset on the main body of the card.

Adding to all the paper & card layers are die cut embellishments (so layered flowers too, LOL), from Marianne Creatables, small flowers cut using a Woodware punch, a couple of Martha Stewart butterflies & frond leaves & floral swirls cut using Double Do dies.

The sentiment on the front of the card, layered up too of course, is from TLC creations but as I wanted to add a section on the back for the 'to' & 'from' I did my best to recreate the selection of fonts (whilst obviously not knowing what Paulette used to create hers), my own wording on the back. Well, it kind of matches of sorts, but given that it won't be viewed in normal circumstances at the same time as the original on the front, I am sure the discrepancy in fonts won't be noticed too much.

...& on the back.

Right folks, you have seen my take on using loads of layers, now it is your turn & if you join in with our challenge & use one of Kenny's images you are in with a chance of winning the fab ribbon prize on offer this week not to mention 5 of Kenny's images to add to your collection. You don't have to use a fancy fold shaped card as I did just show us lots of layers.

Hope you like my card & I appreciate the time you spend in leaving me your kind comments.
